MY RATING: 3 Starts


What to say about this book ?… I gave to it 3 stars because I didn’t love it, but I am also not disappointed with this book. It is like, I didn’t love it, I didn’t hate it, I was not expecting more but I was not expecting less either… it is complicated and I really don’t know how to explain how I feel about it. Over all I enjoyed it ok ?

I have nothing against the characters, only against Charlotte’s friends of course but that’s because they are fifteen years old and annoying (I am not trying to offend any one that is 15 years old, and I am not saying that you are annoying, I am just saying that the characters in this book, that happen to be 15 are really irritating). I have some little “things” against Sue too, she’s kind of unstable but that’s how she is supposed to be, I guess that it is necessary for this story, so I am not complaining about it and I didn’t give to this book 3 stars because of it.

I kind of liked the plot and my “3 stars” aren’t like a 2.5 stars, this score is more like a 3.4 stars, not good enough to be a 4 but not bad enough to be a 3 you know ? I mean, it was great but predictable, I knew what was going to happen at the end all the time… I don’t know, maybe, after all I kind of was expecting a little more just because I don’t really want to read a book (when it is a mystery/thriller, romances are almost always predictable) when I know that the end of the book is going to be kind of obvious.

Of course I think you should read this book because you should have your own opinion about it and I didn’t hate it guys, there’s a chance you’re going to love it !
